I need your advice on fashion!
So, what hairstyles are good for someone with an oval face shape? I'm really not sure if I should get bangs, because I'm not sure they'll look good. Also, what makeup colors do you suggest for someone with brown hair and fair, yet peachy skin?

I know exactly how you feel when your mom criticizes you all the time and makes you feel like nothing you do is right. The good thing is that your mom criticizes you because she loves you and wants you to be the best person you can be. The best thing you can do is tell her that you understand that her intentions are good, but the constant criticizing is making you feel bad about yourself. Once she hears your true feelings I'm sure she will understand. If you think that talking to her might be too hard, try writing her a letter or email. Remember to talk about how you feel and not to attack your mom for her criticism. Hearing an angry lecture from her daughter will not help your mom understand.
If your mom still doesn't seem to get it, try and offer a compromise: If your mom is always criticizing your schoolwork or the way you do your chores, sit down with her and make a list of a few specific goals for you to work on in those areas. For example, you can agree to try and get a B+ in history and keep your room cleaner. By setting small goals, it won't feel like your mom is criticizing you about everything and you will feel accomplished.
I hope this helps, and if it doesn't apply to your situation feel free to tell me and i will try again! Good luck and I hope everything works out!

I know it's hard when it feels like nobody understands you and wants to accept you for who you are. But you need to stay strong and stand up for yourself and your identity. Don't let your mom or friends try to change you. There is a quote by Dr. Seuss that I think you should remember: "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
It will we difficult, but the best way to overcome your problem with your mom and friends is to talk to them and share exactly how you feel. I know that sharing feelings about a problem like this is probably the last thing you want to do, but think of it this way, would you rather have a really serious talk with your mom/friends or give up who you are? Right now, your mom may think that you are just going through a phase, so she is just trying to move the phase along faster. Tell her that the way that you dress doesn't change the person inside and that you like who you are and that it is important to you that your mom accepts who you are too. If she doesn't seem to listen or talking seems too hard, try writing her a heartfelt letter about your feelings. Tell your mom that you want her to be a part of your life and you don't your relationship to become worse because you love her.
For your friends, tell them that you like the way that you dress even if they don't like it and you are okay with being a little different from them. Be upfront about how you don't like it when they try to put makeup on you. They probably just thought it was all in good fun and didn't realize that it bothers you. If it is too hard to talk to all of your friends at once, talk to one friend who is the most open and understanding and a good listener about your feelings. She will then pass along the message to your other friends. (you could also write another letter) If your friends still don't want to accept you, it might just mean that you are growing apart. Try meeting new people that accept who you are and slowly distance yourself from your other friends. Most likely you won't have to get a whole new set of friends, but just remember that there are plenty of people that will accept you as you are.
I hope everything works out and if you still have more questions or problems feel free to ask!

Hey I really need advice. So I really am falling for this guy. I was with him for 3 hours last night, till 10pm. We we're at a high school football game, and we hung out the whole time. He hugged me 3 times that night... And I just cant stop thinking about him.. Whenever I hear songs about love (ex: Mine - Taylor Swift), I think about him. He's the sweetest boy I know What should I do? Please dont say "Ask him out", it'd be really wierd.
P.S. - I already told him I liked him, and he said he already knew that.
alexsoccer23 on 9/16/2010 9:43:36 PM
Thanks! ;) Now, I know what to do. And I think I'll probably do something funny like the funky llama. (The Jerk.) LOL!

If you really want to learn how to split, start small. Do easy, normal stretching often, I suggest when you wake up in the morning and before you go to bed. After a few weeks, you can start doing stretches specific to helping with splits (if you google "learn how to do a split" there are several websites with these types of stretches). Also, you are more flexible after your muscles are warmed up, so running, jumping jacks, or any other exercise that gets blood flowing to your legs helps with flexibility. However, remember that learning how to do a split is a gradual process, it could be a couple months before you start seeing progress. In the meantime, I suggest that you still participate in the dancing! You can find a few cool moves to do if you youtube hip hop dances moves for beginners. you could also try a dance move that makes people laugh like the moonwalk! I wish you good luck in learning to do a split and hope you have fun at the dances! If you have any other questions feel free to ask!
